The Florida High School Athletic Association’s athletic director advisory committee met virtually Thursday to discuss options for starting fall sports according to FloridaHSFootball.com.
There were three options presented.
Start date for practices: Aug. 24
Start date for regular season: Sept. 11
State series: All teams that declare for the state series would be included in the playoffs starting on Nov. 13.
Start date for practices: After August
Start date for regular season: Two weeks after first practice date
State series: Nov. 30-Dec. 12
Start date for practices: Three tier system for all high school sports with football among those starting Nov. 30
Start date for regular season: Three tier system for all high school sports with football starting Dec. 14.
State series: Current format with adjustments for new dates.
The top two were option 3 (eight votes/preferences) and option 1 (seven votes/preferences), though there is no clear direction — yet, at least according to FloridaHSFootball.com.
The FHSAA board of directors will meet Aug. 14 in Gainesville to discuss those options.
